At Shoulder Elbow Hand, we strive to provide an expert therapy service in a professional environment.  We work closely with referring surgeons, doctors and other therapists to achieve an optimal outcome for you in a timely manner.


Our approach is consistent with current evidence based practice, within biopsychosocial as well as biomedical treatment paradigms.  We will address your injury in its entirety, considering the evironment in which you interact and the goals and priorities you have in your recovery.


Our therapists are either Physiotherapy or Occupational Therapy trained, with further training in the management of hand and upper limb conditions.  Please check with your private health fund provider your specific level of cover for either Physiotherapy or Occupational Therapy, as these two disciplines are often covered differently within your extras benefits cover.
